Feel Good Friday – Charles Dickens Museum Tour

15 July @ 13:45 - 14:45 BST

SoA members are invited to join us for a tour of the Charles Dickens Museum – an exclusive opportunity to experience 48 Doughty Street as Dickens knew it.

Our guide will take you on an intimate tour of the Museum – a magical opportunity to explore this uniquely literary Victorian home, led by SoA member and distant relative of Dickens himself, Lucinda Hawksley.

This is an enjoyable way to meet Charles Dickens, his life and his family home.
